Ride My See-Saw

(EMZ, that title is for you!)

I've been having a very up and down week, as you might be able to tell by the consistency of my blogging.
First of all, I haven't been sleeping well for the past couple weeks, so I'm exhausted. I can do a 5-hour night every once in a while. Every day for 2 weeks wreaks havoc with everything else I'm trying to do.
And I'm trying to get all sorts of things out of the way, because Monkey Boy is coming home on leave Sunday and I want to have time to spend with him.
At the same time, Superman is currently in Germany (where Monkey Boy is coming from). I'm not very good at adapting to change, and having Superman away throws my whole schedule off. I can't call him when I want, text him when I want, see him when I want. I know it's only a week and I am certainly not in tears over this, but it is an added layer of stress and I miss him. 
I've been working really hard at my parents. It took me 2 days to completely clean the basement from all the ceiling deconstruction, and I spent yesterday hauling furniture and boxes around making room for the electrician. We had emptied the basement into the living room, and much of that had to be emptied into other areas of the house so the electrician can get to the walls where he'll install new outlets. The same had to happen in all 3 bedrooms and the sewing room. MyFitnessPal figures I spent about 1,400+ calories at my parents yesterday. Then, since I've missed all my runs this week, I went for a 25-mile bike ride.
I'm planning a couple surprises for you. I'll clue you in next week, if they come to fruition.

I'm tired just reading it! I hope you enjoy your visit with monkey boy!

I am very excited to hear about your weekend surprises!

I hope you start sleeping better soon. When I have a long stretch of sleep devrivation, everything goes down the tubes.
